What's The Worst Experience You've Ever Had With A Landlord?


Let's just say most landlords have a less-than-shiny reputation. Though some people get lucky and hit the jackpot with a caring, helpful landlord, others are muchhh less fortunate.

Perhaps you received a message from your landlord telling you NOT to cook in your kitchen, and to think of it more as a "dining" area...WTF.

Or maybe you moved into an apartment with a broken toilet and spent months begging your landlord to fix it. Maintenance finally came to replace it, then realized the wrong type of toilet had been purchased. They got the superintendent's measurements and went to get another one, and realized those measurements were wrong too, so they reinstalled the broken one and ghosted you.

Or perhaps your landlord started showing up to your apartment unannounced and barging in. You kindly asked them to stop, and they bullied and berated you until you felt unsafe in your own space.
